Advanced Vascular Laser Treatment in Sydney

About The Treatment

Unsightly vessels, especially capillaries, often appearing on the face and legs can be effectively reduced with minimal discomfort using our vascular lasers. Vascular lasers work by delivering specific light energy that coagulates the blood within the vessel, causing the ‘broken’ capillaries to shut down and be reabsorbed by the body.

What Can Vascular Laser Therapy Treat?

Vascular laser therapy can treat a variety of vascular conditions, including:

  • Facial redness, including that caused by rosacea, sun damage, and acne
  • Broken blood vessels (telangiectasia)
  • Spider veins
  • Cherry angiomas
